As the Texas Legislature returns to Austin for a Special Session many local city ordinances throughout Texas are being attacked. Governor Abbot and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick are zeroed in on local ordinances despite the Texas constitution that gives broad authority to local jurisdictions. Our discussion on Shades of Green focused this week on the 90 cities in Texas, including Austin, that have implemented local ordinances to protect valuable trees. Our guests were Robin Schneider, Executive Director of Texas Campaign for the Environment (TCE) and Emily King, Urban Forrester for the City of Austin.
